Around 200 viewers have complained about Lady Gaga’s performance on The X Factor UK on Sunday, according to British regulator Ofcom.
The people contacted the broadcasting watchdog about Lady Gaga’s outfit of shells and flesh-colored underwear.
“We will assess all the complaints received on this issue before deciding whether to investigate,” said a spokesman.
Another 60 viewers have complained directly to ITV about Lady Gaga’s appearance, before the 9 p.m. watershed.
An ITV spokeswoman said: “We do not believe Lady Gaga’s performance was inappropriate for the family audience of the X Factor Results show, which has an established tradition of featuring performances from the biggest music stars.
“Lady Gaga is well known for her highly individual performance style.”
In 2010, The X Factor final featured Christina Aguilera in a routine which was described as being “at the very margin of acceptability” by Ofcom.
